Lil Wayne made headlines earlier this year when he dissed members of the Miami Heat after claiming to get kicked out of one of their games.
One Miami Hip Hop figure, DJ Khaled, didn’t feel slighted by the situation.
“Miami is my city. I rep Miami and I feel like the Miami Heat is my team,” explained Khaled to MTV’s “RapFix Live.” “I felt like Wayne went on the radio and showed love to the city and bigged up the city and its love,”
Khaled chalked the situation up to a simple disconnect between Wayne and Miami. “I’ve learned in this game there’s a lot of misunderstandings, miscommunications, so it’s about love, man, and I know it’s love. And that’s all I know, so if you gonna ask me, it’s love.”
Khaled also suggested that Wayne keep his sports loyalties under wraps. “When you’re passionate about your sports, you can’t really let it be known because if you know how much I really like the Jets, you might not be my friend anymore,” he joked. “When it got back to Miami, it turned into, he just said ‘eff Miami.’ It had nothin’ to do with the sports teams no more. When that was everything it had to do with; it was sports, and that’s it.”
